Christof Weinhardt,  Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, "SSME for eOrganizations"

KIT is the biggest research institute in Europe

  • Established 3 to 4 years ago
  • 12 professors, 18 young professors, 115 Ph.D. candidates (e.g. working on NESSI)
  • Schools of economics and business engineering; computer science; electrical engineering; mechanical eningeering

eOrganizations? e.g. Virtual power plants

  • Project running with 10 professors and 10 research assistants and industry
  • How could we change the traditional supply chain?
  • Supply and demand rules change
  • Should be able to collaborate to get better prices through auctions and reverse auctions
